Best Days Are Behind Her... My wife and I have taken 4 cruises to Alaska over the years, but when our extended family asked us to go again, we agreed. We sailed on the Grand Princess. What looked new-fangled and sparkly during our ... Read more

Star Princess was a worthy ship. Basically when choosing between the different itineraries, I was looking for Anchorage to Vancouver. I was very happy with the itinerary, stopping at Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay, Skagway, Juneau and ... Read more

This is my first review. I am a first time British cruiser, 36 years old professional chap, who was, as I suspect many are, a little bemused by the number of alarmingly poor reviews on this site. It does make me wonder why some people go ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have wanted to visit Japan for a long time and this fit nicely with the land part of our holiday. It was our first and likely our last Princess cruise. Our first impression was ok. The embarkation was ... Read more

We have always wanted to cruise through the Panama Canal. When the time and opportunity came up, we booked it. Going through the canal was spectacular...a once in a lifetime experience. To think that this was built over 100 years ago ... Read more

This was our third time on a Princess Cruise ship and our 21st cruise so far. The Coral Princess was a bit disappointing because of its “tired” look and feel in about 60% of the ship. The only reason we choose Princess for ... Read more

Princess cruises has the worst customer service of any business I have experienced in the travel industry. We had a group of 20 including 10 kids and they were awful at managing the group at the kids. Once they have your money with the ... Read more

This was overall the best vacation I ever took. As the date became closer, I did become more nervous after reading some reviews of the ship and dining services. I could not believe how surprised I was that the ship and food both lived up ... Read more

Note: this review is very much food focused! Everything about this cruise to Scandinavia was fantastic. This was not our first cruise (NCL & RCCL) but our first on Princess. Travelling with my elderly mum who has coeliac disease ... Read more

We booked this cruise, our first Princess Cruise, mostly for its itinerary in Scandinavia, which interested us greatly. We weren't expecting a lot from the ship itself due to its negative reviews. However, we were pleasantly surprised! ... Read more

We chose this Scandinavian cruise as it is a part of the world I have always wanted to visit, and Emerald Princess happened to be there. We visited Zeebrugge, Copenhagen and Oslo, and had a visit to Helsinborg in Sweden aborted due to bad ... Read more

I now know that I'm not a fan of big box cruises. The Regal is huge and jam packed. Not my thing. However, if you fancy big crowds, lots of flash aka Vegas, then it's the cruise for you. The staterooms are well appointed, yet small. I ... Read more

We planned a family trip for 10 people and 4 more family members joined us. We selected the Alaska destination because most of us had never been to Alaska and the trip was planned for June. We were a diverse group ranging in age from ... Read more

This was a bucket list item, and Princess had the itinerary we wanted. They appear to be one of the only cruise lines that offer this itinerary and that is why we choose them. We had not cruised with Princess in the past. We loved the ... Read more

Chose this cruise line because of the ports (7 in all) we would visit. Not disappointed. Best cruise I have taken thus far. Whatever good you have heard about Princess is true. Best dining ever including the main dining rooms, good ... Read more

This was our third cruise with the Princess Cruise line. Our past cruises with this company were quite memorable. But this time things were slightly less fantastic. Our cabin was clean and comfortable and the service people aboard the ... Read more

The ports on this cruise were of interest to us. Embarkation was the easiest of any cruise we have been on. We chose to book all of our shore excursions independently, we were pleased with all of our excursions. We were not pleased ... Read more
